Advice for Christmas Party Planning

RB Great Hall Dinner

At this time every year, venues begin to receive enquires for Christmas parties. With demand each year getting higher, party venues begin to take their bookings earlier to ensure a steady flow of celebrations starting from mid-November; it is therefore essential you are on the ball.

To help you plan the perfect Christmas party we have put together seven top tips to make planning this year’s Christmas party the best one yet.

  1. Location, location, location – Do not be afraid to make your guests pack a suitcase for the evening. Getting as far away from the office or family home as possible could give you and your guests the much needed festive freedom required to let your hair down.
  2. A party venue with a difference – Pick somewhere your guests will remember. A party venue with some wow factor, such as Longleat House, our Christmas favourite, will blow the stockings off your guests
  3. Budget - There’s nothing worse than over spending on decorations and santa outfits. Budget accordingly to save the embarrassment of crawling back to you boss asking for more
  4. Choosing a theme – Never let your boss choose the theme. You will end up researching costume inspiration for days, instead choose something simple and fun.
  5. Set a date - Get your date booked in with the guests well in advance, which goes for the venue too. A sought after wow factor venue is sure to book up fast.
  6. Plan the night - From pre-arrival drinks to awarding guests their secret Santa gifts, preparation ensures a smooth stress free evening for all.
  7. Have fun! - You’ve slaved away for months planning the event of all events, now is the time to sit back and enjoy it all.
